Whew! It’s been about a year since I last updated my blog. I had to take a much needed break. I also couldn’t concentrate for shit. My PTSD had gotten to a point that I needed to get help again. I was feeling suicidal and my brain was all out of sorts with flashbacks, insomnia, and lot of other horrible symptoms I was trying to cope with on my own. You will see what I mean from the videos around October on my Patreon account.
I finally got it through my thick head that I can’t do this by myself. I needed a medical team to help me. I needed a support system. I needed a lot that I wasn’t able to give myself. Having to mostly deal with my CPTSD by myself I was very resistant to getting help. I moved to NY state to get better mental healthcare. I was afraid but I did it anyway. I signed up for state help and made a psychiatrist appointment. From there I was in the hospital for awhile in the Partial Hospitalization program. It is a step from inpatient care. I completed the program and now I am in a longer program to learn how to manage my symptoms and finally get the trauma therapy I have so desperately needed for decades.
Its been an adventure but I am still here, still living, and healing. Here are some things I have accomplished so far:

I’d also like to apologize to anyone that was trying to get in touch with my this last year or so. I have had very little energy to respond but I plan to get better with that! I promise I was not ignoring anyone on purpose. I keep telling myself that I will tackle the comments and emails but then I am exhausted from fighting mental illness. I hope you will forgive me.
